Nip/Tuck Season 6 Episode 19 ~ Hiro Yoshimura {100th Episode Season/Series' Finale}

Nip/Tuck Season 6 Episode 19 ~ Hiro Yoshimura {100th Episode Season/Series' Finale}

Porn is once again in the spotlight on Nip/Tuck, but with a twist. Adult film star Hiro Yoshimura [played by Koji Kataoka] is a septuagenarian who wants doctors McNamara/Troy to give him a surgical procedure, but he does not want to look younger. Nor is he in need of a penile enlargement or scrotal lift. Mr.Yoshimura has a scar he would like to have corrected. As of this posting this episode has not aired, so i don't know specifically where the scar is, but given that this is Nip/Tuck, i'm sure it will be medically and physiologically unique.

In sub-plots, Doctor Troy makes Ava an offer she cannot refuse. Again, speculating, i'm imagining he offers to do corrective surgery on her adopted baby boy Raphael, with the proviso that she leave town and Matt, pronto.

Julia has a heart to heart with Christian about her concerns about Sean's emotional well being. Christian in turn sincerely asks Sean "tell me what you don't like about yourself".

As has been the tradition with Nip/Tuck finales, look for a scene with the family gathered around the dinner table. Even so, for fans, this finale is different, in that it is not just a season finale, it is also the series' finale. A friend turned me on to a wonderful quote: "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened" ~ Theodor Geisel aka Dr.Seuss [Thank you to Miss Kimber at http://niptuckforum.com for the quotation.]

i'm using that quote as my mantra whenever i feel whiney about the fact that Nip/Tuck in first run airing is concluding. i refuse to say gone, because thankfully because of dvds, and on-line viewing, Nip/Tuck will never really be gone. And even though FX has not yet announced plans for re-runs or syndication, i can't help thinking that one or both those options will eventually come to pass.

FX will air the season/series' finale on Wednesday March 3, 2010 at 10:00pm, and 11:00pm. Also Friday night/Saturday morning March 7, 2010 at Midnight and Sunday night/Monday morning March 8, 2010 at Midnight.
Please check your local listings.

And now if you will indulge me for a moment, going off script here...
